become an end to the logical wonderland where the obama administration seems to be more obsessed with semantics and sentence construction than in the capture or killing of terrorists. washington taking pettiness and irrelevancies to new heights while dismissing any sense of proportion when it comes to a radical islamists and the war and terror of. and for all of that, this was a red letter day. president obama's mantra that al qaeda is on the run proved wrong yet again. you're looking at pictures of yemen where government officials uncovered a al qaeda plot to capture oil and gas facilities to fire on foreign embassies, the key port. news of the plot breaking as the united states is stepping up its drone attacks there, killing at least 78 terrorists in the southern part of the country. and the broader plot that led to the closings of 19 embassies and facilities in 16 countries still acted tonight was no indication that the threats have in any way diminished. here is state department spokesperson jan saki on the closings and alert. >> our embassy remains closed, continuing to eval

, charismatic. we saw those kind of narrative working that had us president obama between malcolm x and martin luther king. some of us cringed. not because we supported barack obama. president obama was running to be leadership of the united. for some people that meant his interests were protecting these kind of corporate elite interests that are often against the interests of poor people regardless of color. and the questions of economic justice were never on the table. all right. ever. so that work in the past i would say thirty years, twenty years, that taught us to look differently at what leadership look like it seeps in the analysis every once awhile. it seeps in when we mention the name of ella baker. ic we have to go deeper. what did ella baker, not only women but what did they stand for? what did ella baker and eye data b. wells, and these were women who were more involved on the protest end because it wasn't to them. i think the freedom struggle they talked about always knew that electoral politics -- we seemed to have given that up when we put everything behind the wishes in the bas

president obama abruptly cancels a summit with vladimir putin. tonight, what's behind the decision and what it means. >>> moving on. a house of horrors where three women were held captive is torn down as one of the victims rises up to start a new life. >>> pool safety. tonight the issue getting urgent new attention over those drain covers at the bottom of the pool. >>> and must see tv. more than 30 cameras capturing their every moves in one of the best new shows in black and white.

for tonight's massive jackpot. >>> president obama is in southern california this hour where he rapped up a live stream question and answer session on the housing and market sector. >> we could be renovating, rehabbing and putting on the rental market thousands of thousands thousands of units. >> zillow.com hosted the forum. president obama answered questions that were submitted through facebook, twitter and videos. it comes a day after his speech in phoenix promoting his new housing proposals. president obama will visit pendleton. he is expected to arrive 35 empties from now. -- 35 minutes from now. he plans to meet with troops and families to thank them for his service. it is his final stop on his two day trip. >>> also today president obama canceled his meeting with russian president vladimir putin that was going to happen during the summit next month. it was more than just the situation with edward snowden that led to the decision. >> reporter: my contacts sent us this statement saying the decision was made on a lack of progress on global security issues. president obama is frustrated
. ♪ >>> we'll have more from camp pendleton coming up. but we begin with a new decision from president obama. he's cancelling a planned one-on-one with russian president vladimir putin. the meeting was scheduled to coincide with the president's trip to the g-20 economic trip. obama vowed to keep his commitment in attending the g-20 during a sit-down with jay leno last night. that's despite his disappointment over putin's decision to grant nsa leaker edward snowden asylum. so are we headed toward a modern-day cold war between these two? >> i was disappointed because, you know, even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a lawbreaker or an alleged lawbreaker in their country. there have been times where they slipped back into cold war thinking and a cold war mentality. what i consistently say to them and what i say to president putin is that's the past. you know e we've got to think about the future. >> mean tiemt, many are expecting more revelations from snowden related to u.s. surveillance programs. administration officials say

afternoon, everyone. i'm jake tapper. we begin with the world lead. right now president obama is speaking to troops and their families in california's camp pendleton, hess last stop on his trip out west. this as the world remains under a vaguely defined terror threat which led the state department to close 19 embassies around the world this week. the president was conspicuously quiet until last night when he broke his silence on "the tonight show." >> whenever we see a threat stream we think is specific enough that we can take some specific precautions within a certain time frame, then we do so. >> we first heard about these embassy closings until thursday, but until jay leno asked about it, the president let officials under him handle the public information side of this threat. >>> the alert was issued after a message was intercepted from ayman al swirli. zawahiri. so yemen is saying it foiled an al qaeda plot to capture oil and gas facilities, and seize two ports, but i can't help but notice the u.s. diplomatic post throughout the region remain closed. is it safe to assume that the u.s.

? >> it could be also that president obama is going to be on jay leno tonight. who knows. the fact that this guy is in a halfway house while terrorists are free, it is like arresting the editors of runners world for the marathon bomber, letting him go free. i will say this about this filmmaker, no question he is a shady dude, he did break some laws, but he was also a decoy, a pawn in a government coverup. he is really not the story here. the story is how the white house found him and used him in order to win an election. wait a second. he was integral in getting obama elected because they used him to smooth over the idea there was terrorism. obama should pardon him for helping him with the election or introduce him to george clooney, have him make connections in hollywood. this guy got obama reelected. >> let's remember that he has now three fatwas against him, they want to put him in protective custody, somebody needs to. these guys are serious players when it comes to that stuff. one thing that bothers me about what he said, i can't find all of the moderate muslims he is talking about who are
their fail. the film maker the obama administration falsely blamed for benghazi was released and he says he has no regrets. nbn tells the daily caller that he is proud of making the innocence of muslim, which is the movie. he says it was more political than religious, and it wasn't against islam, but rather the terrorism culture which he says will cause the world suffering if it isn't stopped. nocula squared as i like to call him is still in custody in a halfway house for violating his probation, aka, because the obama administration needed a scapegoat for its failure. i believe we have tape of him eating his first meal after prison. >> i didn't get to the scapegoat line until i saw the image. buck, in some weird way is this wacky somewhat shady, screwed up guy an american hero? >> i wouldn't go that far. first off, if we are going to start imprisoning people for making bad movies anybody involved in the "fast and furious" franchise is toast. they will be serving long sentences and for those responsible for the pacific rim movie should be in solitary confinement. >> how dare you go after vi
're not going to be involved. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell in washington. president obama pulled the plug on that moscow summit with vladimir putin next month. the latest move of international chess. nbc white house correspondent kristin welker joins us from the white house. kristin, this is only the latest irritant between the two over syria and other issues. this snowden affair certainly was what set them over the edge. >> reporter: it was. this was sort of the straw that broke the camel's back. i've been talking to senior administration officials and they're really stressing that idea this afternoon, that russia's decision to grant snowden temporary asylum is a part of a number of tensions that have existed between the united states and russia leading up to today. that is something that they emphasized in the statement that they put out, andrea. i'll read you part of the statement by jay carney. he says, quote, given our lack of progress on issues such as missile defense and arms control and trade and commercial relations, global security issues, we have informed the russian government

[applause] welcome, kendall, it yourself comfortable and we are glad you made it. barack obama set up our conversation about blacks in the 21st century through his comments yesterday. but i want to put into a larger context because we are trying to take a backward and forward look on this conversation. where have we come to sense in the 50 years since the march on washington? at the same time, this particular moment is framed by the events. the first is in the three and a half weeks ago actually, the supreme
news made those republicans think they were going to win, that they could beat barack obama, that he wasn't a popular president. >> let's go back to reality, joan, with this. as your point is made, there's a long tradition of news anchors moderating debates. i moderated the republican debate at the reagan library last election, 2008. >> right. >> despite that history, reince priebus defended his threat to shut out nbc and cnn, saying he wants to be in business with participating outlets. participating. let's listen. >> yes. >> i think it's just about time that our party stands up and protects the party and our candidates from networks that are not in the business of promoting our party. they're not in the business of promoting our candidates. they're not in the business of doing anything but promoting the democratic party. and i'm not going to sit around and watch this happen anymore. >> that's kind of a dull comment to say he only wants to do business with those in the business of promoting their candidates. admit it, i admit we're not in that business. >> right. this is the questio
